Nope, this isn’t the scientific unit or the character from Deep Space Nine. This is a humble, German, folded pastry with a scrumptious filling. As I’ve been reading historical fiction, the one thing that hasn’t been fiction is the food. I’ve learned so much about German food in the book I am reading (The Ice Cutter’s Daughter) that one recipe (out of many) jumped out. Quarktaschen is a smallish-folded pastry filled with Quark (a type of curdled cheese) along with other flavors. Here is the recipe I will be following for Quark: (one can fill these with endless possibilities)


Here is what Quarktaschen looks like: (another link)


And yes, here is the recipe:

4 2/5 ounces low-fat Quark
1 cup wheat flour (type 1050)
4 2/5 ounces RAMA original
1 pinch of salt
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
4 2/5 ounces low-fat Quark
2 4/5 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon orange zest
1 mango
5 9/14 tablespoons coconut flakes
 knead Quark, flour, Rama, salt and powdered sugar with the hook of the Handrührers to make a smooth dough. 30 minutes refrigerate the dough.
 2. for the filling, mix cottage cheese, sugar and orange zest. Peel mango, cut into slices and roll in the grated coconut.
 3. dough on a floured work surface, roll out and cut into 6 squares (10 x 10 cm). On each square about 1 Tablespoon filling and spread the mango it. The corners slightly to the middle of the fold and press.
Quark bags lay on a baking tray with baking paper occupied and in a preheated oven at 200 ° C (fan: 175 ° C) bake for about 30 minutes.
I will post pictures of mine once I bake them! Bon Appetit, or should I say, Genießen Sie Ihre Mahlzeit
